My understanding and demonstration of Christian Science have slowly grown and expanded over the years. Through much prayer and many experiences of healing, I have come to trust God with my daily life and with every bit of my existence. I have learned that the understanding of God’s love heals, that knowing the warm and comforting presence of God’s love adjusts things that need to be adjusted. I have especially learned this through two recent healing experiences.
First, about a year ago, I discovered two large lumps in my right breast. I was initially concerned because I have four teenage children who need my help, and as a single mother I am busy with my employment, too. However, I did not seek a medical diagnosis or medical treatment; I was clear that this condition could be healed through Christian Science. With the many healings through prayer I had experienced, I just knew that relying on God’s healing power was the answer for me.
I endeavored not to touch the area or to think about it. When the condition did come to mind and I found myself afraid, I would declare to myself how much God loved me as His child, that I was the very image and likeness of divine Love, and that Love was the very source of my being as God’s spiritual reflection. I knew that in reality the only presence and power is God, divine Love.
